Hangout is the default messaging app in Android 4.4. I know that it's possible to use a third party application for SMS, but it there a way to log out of hangout entirely? Or at least to block the notifications? I keep receiving chat notification both on my phone and my computer and it's really annoying.

I do not want to uninstall/deactivate it because I still want to be able to use it while I'm on the road.

this doesn't work? I haven't tried it, because I don't have hangouts on my phone.


Sign out of Hangouts

TIP: If you don’t want to receive notifications, enable Snooze notifications.

Touch Menu >​ Settings > Touch your Google account > scroll to the bottom and touch Sign out.

  • So simple that I'm seriously ashamed that I didn't find that on my own... Thanks!
